Imaginary Friends: A Field Guide

Imaginary Friends: A Cross-Dimensional Field Guide introduces the basics of this monumental event with facts and details of the discovery, character studies, the formation of an exploration team and even pop culture influences.

This 31 page pamphlet book written and illustrated by Chet Phillips focuses on the magical revelations gathered from the “Age of Imagined Enlightenment.”

“A must read for anyone interested in the future of cross-dimensional alliances.”
— Argus Pringlesheet

“The quintessential introductory guide for learning about Imaginary Friends.”
